The rain has been keeping us mostly indoors for the last few days, but between the much needed showers in California, I found some time to chase Suki around using Fuji’s new Classic Chrome setting on the X100T. Some of the results actually remind me of the last roll of Portra I ran through my […]Read More Fuji Classic Chrome
I’ve been using the Canon G1 X Mark II as my primary grab and go digital camera for the last few months. My initial impressions were already pretty favorable, and I’m happy to say that it’s grown on me even more now that I’ve been shooting with it for a while. It probably won’t dethrone my all […]Read More Shooting With The Canon G1 X Mark II
I totally love the Olympus OM-D. The Pana-Leica 25mm, Olympus 12 and 45mm M. Zuiko primes, and the body itself all fit in my camera bag with plenty of room to spare, so I can take the entire kit wherever I go. The OM-D checks a lot of the right boxes. Fast, responsive, quiet, well-built, small, […]Read More Life With The OM-D

Nikon D700 + Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G | 5 sec, f/1.4, ISO 5000 After a grueling 16 hour drive from San Francisco, we stopped about half an hour from Grand Canyon National Park and stayed the night. The sun had already set before we could get to the Canyon, but we headed out there anyway to check out a […]Read More A Starry Evening at the Grand Canyon
Is the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 VC sharp at f/2.8? Mine is. Focus accuracy is good too, so I must have nabbed a good copy. It does tend to vignette more than I’d like at f/2.8, but I can live with it. I just realized that Suki is two years old as of last month. She’s […]Read More Sharp?
I love keeping my camera with me at all times, but I can’t always lug my tripod around. That’s why the constant f/2.8 maximum aperture coupled with vibration control in my Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 VC zoom lens makes a killer combination for shooting hand-held in low light. I took the night shot above on the […]Read More f/2.8 + VC
